FY 2016/2017 Research Topic: C-01
Evolution of agricultural management in developing countries


In recent years, it has been possible to observe significant changes in the input and output market of agricultural products, as well as the technology used in their production, processing and distribution. Because of these changes, we have been able to observe the emergence of new types of agricultural producers or organizers and new combinations of productive resources in developing countries. The objective of this research project is to analyze who these producers or organizers are and how they are innovating in order to combine their productive resources. This analysis will provide key knowledge for formulating policies that will promote the agricultural producers and organizers who will feed us in the future.
